Prepare Your Garden for Spring with Teak Garden Furniture

Teak garden furniture makes a lovely addition to any garden.

If you want to add value to your home in 2013, giving your garden some TLC can make your home more appealing. It may be winter but getting your garden ready for spring can help those winter months pass quicker. Before you know it, spring will have sprung and you will wonder why you hadn’t started preparing earlier.

Growing your Own Food

This is a popular New Year’s Resolution for many amateur gardeners and when it comes to growing your own food, it is never too early to start. Growing potatoes, carrots, beetroot, cabbages and sprouts in your garden can save you money and is the ultimate convenience. If you plan to grow your own food in the spring, you can prepare for this by de-cluttering your garden. Tidy away garden tools and cut down dead flowers to make room for your vegetable patch. Mow your lawn and get into the habit of regularly maintaining this space. By the time spring arrives, your garden will be in the best shape it has ever been.

Creating a Social Space

Once you have de-cluttered your garden, you will have a blank canvas to work with. If you have made it one of your resolutions to be more social in 2013, a stunning furniture set can help you to create a striking social space. Teak garden furniture is a popular choice due to its hard-wearing nature and stunning appearance. Teak dining sets can add a new dynamic to your home and allow you spend more time outdoors with friends and family.

Prettify your Patio

It’s not just your lawn that requires attention in the winter months. Your patio can become grimy overtime but with the help of a pressure washer it will scrub up very well. This is a great way to remove all of the moss that has built up over time and it will restore your patio so it gleams.

Invest in Gardening Essentials

It may not be time to plant seeds but there is no harm in being prepared. Asses all of your gardening tools and take a note of what you have, what needs to be replaced and any essentials that you need to invest in. Start to collect pots that will be ideal for planting seeds and by the time spring arrives you will be ready to transform your garden.
